We’re going to Los Angeles next week, and, as usual, I spent some time preparing my iPad and iPhone for the trip by stocking them with new things to read and play. I have a short attention span, so I need enough stuff to distract me whenever I’m on a plane, train or ship.
My go-to app for travel is still Libby by OverDrive, a free app that lets me check out books and audiobooks from the public library. There is always plenty to read or listen to, with tens of thousands of titles from which to choose. For this trip, I checked out recent novels by some of my favorite series authors, including Lee Child (Jack Reacher), Jeffery Deaver (Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs), and Stuart Woods (Stone Barrington). I also grabbed a James Patterson audiobook as a backup if I finished the e-books.
